Twitter is a social networking phenomenon. There is no other way to describe it. I seriously have to make myself walk away from the computer for an hour every day because it is addictive to read everyone else’s tweets.
For those who don’t know what twitter is (seriously? I think everyone knows!): you have only 140 characters to write something fun and send it out to the world. Others who have twitter read your comments and sometimes comment back or RT, retweet what you wrote. You can pick any subject to tweet about. I do diva quotes and other interesting blurbs as I think of them during the day.
People tweet everything from the unrest in [insert country name here] to comments on politics or the economy or their relationships, or the more mundane like what they ate for lunch or what movie they’re watching. It’s both amazing and a bit frightening to be that connected to millions of people in the blink of an eye.
Postscript: I tweet a “Diva Quote” everyday.
